Even if he OC's two Crossfired cards, and CPU, and decides he wants more so considers going under water, now he's underwater he can do some insane OC'ing and when he put's in another 5 hdd's, what if he wants lighting to.

Lol just a typical scenario but it happens, If you got the money splash out on a 1Kw+ if not, well, hit that road block in the future.

Actually there are many people who have certain limits when buying GPU's. For example, I know that I'll never spend more than about £150-200 on graphics cards... therefore anything more than a 450-500w for me would be a pointless waste of money.

If the OP isn't going to be SLIing GTX 580's then getting an 850w+ is also a pointless waste of money. A 650w is all he needs.
